Twelve genera and 18 species are recognized: Patene simpsoni Paula Couto, 1952; Patene coluapiensis Simpson, 1935; Procladosictis anomala Ameghino, 1902; Pseudonotictis pusillus (Ameghino, 1891) gen. nov.; Notictis ortizi Ameghino,...

Members of the South American marsupial family Microbiotheriidae are known from Late Oligocene (Colhuehuapian) and Early Miocene (Santacrucian) age beds in Patagonia, southern Argentina, and in the Recent fauna from Chiloe Island, south central Chile, and from adjacent parts of Argentina. Two genera, Microbiotherium and Dromiciops, and seven species are recognized. Microbiotherium divisum (Ameghino, 1902e) is known only from the Colhuehuapian.

The early Pliocene Hamilton local fauna from southwestern Victoria, Australia, has at least fifteen kinds of macropodoids including propleopines, potoroines, hypsiprymnodontines, sthenurines, and macropodines. New taxa described here include a potoroine, Milliyowi bunganditj n. gen. and sp. and the macropodines Dorcopsis wintercookorum n. sp., Thylogale ignis n. sp., and Kurrabi pelchenorum n. sp. The other ten genera present are represented by specimens for which no species assignment has been...
